I would like to extend our complete gratitude and heartfelt thanks to all the educators at Kings Road Long Day Pre-School for offering our son Callum such a positive start to his education. He loves coming to Kings Road Long Day Pre-School and from our very first meeting we have felt welcomed and at ease with the happy and nurturing environment – Callum has evolved into an inquisitive learner and a thoughtful caring child, who is looking forward to BIG school but definitely sad to be leaving pre-school. We certainly look forward to returning late in 2022 with our 3rd son, Jayden. Wishing you all good health and a happy 2022 – until we meet again – thank you😊
We love how warm and welcoming the preschool feels and the values that the preschool uphold. The children learn about kindness and care towards others. We also like that the environment allows for real play for kids and teaches them to share.
My child has a community outside of home that he loves, feels safe and trusts.
The director Ms Christine is very responsible and proactive. You can tell the educators here they treat all children like their own, otherwise my daughter would not be so attached to this preschool. They incorporate leaning into fun activities so children can have fun and and stay engaged.
My child loves King Road Preschool because he gets to play with his friends and also learn in a nurturing and caring environment. We love the child to educator ratio where more attention is able to be given to each child.
I am impressed with the educators' engagement with Jasmine and she has been delighted to go to preschool.
Close relationship between educators and parents. Great progress for children's behaviour and learning skills.
From the first time I spoke to you on the phone enquiring about a place for L at Kings Road Preschool, and the very first time she and I visited to meet you and get a feel for the place, you and the team have been exactly what we needed. Your teaching and life education philosophies have been so closely aligned with my own. She has thrived under your care. She has been stretched, challenged, loved, taught age-appropriate personal responsibility, and given healthy boundaries. You have provided her a stable environment with consistent routines and expectations that still allow for her individual interests and a healthy element of autonomy.
Our children have received incredible support, education and care. The educators are very kind, experienced and diligent. Our children have made beautiful friendships and it has been very enjoyable to look at photos and read stories about their development and social interactions via the Kinderloop app. We have even made friends with other parents so it has been a lovely community to be a part of. Also, attending graduation, watching the children perform and the Christmas party are events that have been wonderful.
Thank you Christine and all educators. We had a memorable 1.5 years at Kings Road Preschool. Anvi enjoyed her time with you teachers and her friends. Wish you all the best!
Thank you for all your teaching, guidance and support for this year! Particularly with the challenges of COVID, you have all done amazing work!
The best Preschool I've ever known since I lived here. Teachers are very kind to the children and centre provides enriched and a variety of teaching contents rather than just let them play for the whole day. Happy for Jeremy, he also likes the centre very much.
The children are well taken care of; provided with a fun variety of activities to engage in. Educators are enthusiastic about teaching and nurturing the children.
I like the feeling of how the Preschool is close-knit and have a sense of community. I like how themes/ interests are explored from the children's likes and interests.
At the core of Kings Road Preschool is the value of each individual child. Questions that guide the inquiry and creativity of children are then transformed into meaningful learning experiences that are facilitated by empathetic and supportive educators. Collaborative learning experiences foster respect and resilience. Beyond the preschool, we can see the benefits of this in our daughter’s interactions with new people and places. We are often taken by surprise by how well our daughter can articulate her opinions on environmental ideas or use her scissors. We know that it is because of her preschool. As parents, we are not only keen observers of this learning journey, we are invited whole-heartedly to provide any input to this community. We are so grateful that we found Kings Road Long Day Preschool because we see our daughter’s little daily achievements as a strong foundation for whatever is ahead in her future.
